This 1928 movie palace located in downtown Hammond, originally seating almost 1,200, it was closed in 1972. It reopened in 1977 as a legitimate theater, but closed once again by the early-1980’s.
The theater was acquired by Southeastern Louisiana University after sitting vacant for over 15 years and had become at risk of demolition. The Columbia reopened in 2002 after a renovation and restoration project costing close to $5 million.
Today, the Columbia houses a 900-seat performing arts auditorium, a conference center, gallery, and office space.
